The MITx MicroMasters credential in Supply Chain Management is a standalone certification program offered by MITx that is designed and administered by the MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics (CTL); supported by the MIT Office of Digital Learning (ODL); and delivered on edx.org. The MITx MicroMasters credential consists of five intensive on-line courses covering all aspects of logistics and supply chain management along with a proctored comprehensive final exam (CFx). To take the CFx, you must pass all five courses of the MicroMasters in Supply Chain Management as a verified student.
The CFx consists of two 120-minute exams, Exam I and Exam II. The exam must be broken into two exams for proctoring logistics. The exams will be a mix of qualitative and quantitative questions with the first exam covering more of the fundamentals of supply chain management and the second covering advanced and special topics. Students who have selected virtual proctoring will have from May 19th 1500 UTC to May 22nd 1500 UTC to take the exam. Once a student begins Exam I, they must complete both exams within 12 hours. Students cannot start Exam II without completing Exam I. Each exam will be timed, but students need to finish both exams within the 12 hour time period or they will not pass (there will be no secondary timer to regulate the 12 hour guideline). Virtual test takers will use the Software Secure proctoring software to be virtually proctored. If you have not passed all five courses as a verified student in advance of the exam - you will not be allowed to take the CFx.
If you pre-registered and are planning to take this exam in-person at an MIT SCALE center, per course team communications, please DO NOT enroll through this course instance. You will be pre-enrolled in the correct in-person proctored CFx and will be notified of course enrollment through the edX platform.
